Breath For Those Struggling to Breathe

What we are seeing in America today may look like the result of centuries of systemic racism, but it is really the results of millenniums of greed. Racism is just a tool the greedy use to maintain control. Greed is defined by Merriam Webster as “a selfish and excessive desire for more of something (such as money) than is needed.” The wealth of this world is being greedily held by just a few. This manufactured racism works so well, the aristocracy can just flaunt their extreme wealth in the faces of the oppressed masses without fear. While it is true that the soul of the courts has been bought, it is the lack of empathy in society, for those whom justice is slow to serve, which hinders the needed reforms.

Racism is the bait and easy way taken by those infected with fear, who hold with clinched fist, the dregs left them by the greedy. The problem is not your neighbor, who is just trying to live as you are, it is the system which allows so little to be given for the masses to divide. Racism is the virus which was created by the aristocracy, carried in society by the weak-hearted, and infecting all susceptible to hate.

The inability of one human to see the humanity in another is the pandemic heart disease which threatens all mankind. Inhumanity is the disease which cripples the judgment of the greedy, which hinders the ability of them to see that their excessiveness is depriving other humans. Before you dismiss this as just socialist rhetoric, it is undeniable that there is only so much water, so much land, and so much time to work with in any given generation. When these key resources are manipulated so that they only profit a small segment of the earth’s population, it is unethical and wrong. If there is any concern about a shortage of natural resources, the focus should not be reducing the population of the poor through inhumane eugenics, it should be making sure that the wealth of the world benefits all humanity.

The only way to combat greed, and the racism it perpetuates, is through curing the diseased hearts. This will facilitate the revolution of values needed to rescue society from further moral decay. This is why the gospel of Love must be taught and demonstrated by the true children of GOD. Unlike the Christian hirelings which have been historically complicit with the oppression and injustice rampant in the United States and the rest of the world, it is time for the true followers of Christ to arise and continue the mission of YESHUA which He declared in Luke 4:18-19 (KJV),

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”

This mission is for those who have taken up the cross of Christ and only seek the life which is found through the resurrection power of GOD. They who resist fear through faith in GOD and persevere through love, will triumph with Christ!

“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NKJV)

The Official Theme of Black History Month is “The Vote”

The Vote

The theme for Black History month this year is “The Vote”. This is the sesquicentennial of the Black vote or its 150th anniversary. This month the founders of Black History month, The Association for the Study of African American Life and History, brings focus to the historical inclusion of African Americans into the category of “people” with certain unalienable rights. The Declaration of Independence, known as one of the founding Charters of Freedom, declared, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

It took the U.S. 346 years to finally acknowledge Black Americans as humans with the Voting Rights Act of 1965. From the first documented ship that arrived in Virginia with the human trafficked from Africa (1619), until the Voting Rights Act (1965), was 346 years. This is an indictment on the Christian roots of this nation. If the framers were truly enlightened, and this was a Christian nation, it would not have taken over 350 years to see that Black people are heirs of Christ as well. The fact that many confessing Christians view America as a Christian nations exposes a deep root of delusion, and the lack of a true relationship with Christ the Savior. The Book of 1st John states that whoever says they love GOD, yet hate their brother is a liar.

Even after the passing of the Voting Rights Act, there were still many obstacles to the polls, from terrorism by white supremacist to voter suppression by governing bodies. The latter is still n issue today in the former Jim Crow states. In 2013, Alabama officials argued before the U.S. Supreme Court in Shelby versus Holder, that the protections provided under the Voting Rights Act were no longer needed to prevent discrimination, and on June 25th of that year the court agreed. This has opened the door for polling changes previously blocked by the VRA to be instituted, like the “exact match” policy which has been proven to disproportionately affect the black community.

The struggle continues….
